Turin is a city of true beauty, with the majestic Alps in the distance and the Po River running through its center.
Turin, the first capital of a united Italy, might not be as well known as some of Italy’s other destinations, but it has a lot to offer. Do not miss its regal Baroque and Rococo architecture, as well as its many art galleries and museums. There’s a beautiful royal palace, the Palazzo Reale, with a vast art collection, and the baroque Basilica of Superga, perched on a hill overlooking the city. Turin is also home to the Fiat factory, so there are plenty of car museums, including the Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile. But the city is also full of lovely squares, like Piazza Castello and Piazza San Carlo, and elegant streets, like Via Roma and Via Garibaldi. And, of course, there are plenty of bars and restaurants, as well as some great shopping.
